? >> yes and yes. he is dealing with the joe wilson school of debate, something we've seen from romney before. he tries to newt traize his own weaknesses by turning them against president obama. how much time it gives the obama campaign to prepare and to ji jut sue it. now obama can go into that debate ready to talk about the many lies and misspeaks of the romney campaign, whether that be the mischaracterization of obama's medication plan or obama who killed simpson/bowles. i think obama is going to be able to say, you know what, let's do not this, mitt. let's not point fingers at one another. let's rise above it and each tell the american people what we are capable of. >> let me ask you this, alicia, because we just had nbc wall street journal marist poll release new figures. president is up seven points in new hampshire, up by two points in nevada and north carolina. and in a poll released yesterday, up ten points in ohio, nine points in florida. up by 12 points in pennsylvania. is this why we are seeing these desperate measures now? clean across the board, every poller is saying he'

governor romney has a good debate, he can change it, but the problem here is he's running a bad campaign he's a bad candidate with bad policies, and how do you turn that around in one debate? i'm not sure it's possible. >>well chs got all these internal numbers now that he's banking on. they've got to be feeling good about their internal numbers. every campaign has internal numbers, you know how it is. how does he turn it around? we've played a big segment tonight on ohio. i think he hadhat mowe o e tatan working man look to try to appease the problem when it came to the 47%. how does he turn this around? and where does he turn it around? where does he really have to focus? >> here's what i think is interesting about this election. it started offyou know, as most elections do fo inenasefdu but then it became clearly a choice. now it's become a referendum again, but not on president obama. it's become a referendum on governor romney and his policies and his statements and his vision, and his just, i think, basic outlook for the countr for hard-working mili. i'm noture weha that.

two of the debates. mid-october. give it time. (laughter) the romney campaign is only on their third reboot since the convention! we've had businessman romney, foreign policy romney, latino romney. (laughter) but we still haven't seen aqua romney! (laughter and applause) he-- (cheers and applause) he uses his mental powers to tell fish that 47% of them are just lampreys. (laughter) so conservatives, just forget about the polls! it is way too soon to start mourning the death of the romney campaign. and i am not in denial here, because that would mean i was starting the five stages of grief. and i am not! oh, that makes me so angry! (laughter) and i will do anything not to be going through the five stages! let's make a deal, god. i'm so sad. (laughter) well, nothing more i can do.
